hey guys do you think my rear looks to high. I droped the car using uuc and took some shots the other day. Can the rear springs be improperly installed?

They look fine to me...although i'm not sure how much of a drop the UUC springs are supposed to give, but it looks about right by comparing it to the front.

Also, remember that the springs need time to settle a little bit.

How long have they been mounted? Give them at least a month to settle into their proper height, as Bliss pointed out.

they will sag over time
so wat bliss said is right
or depending which lowering spring you also bought man ! if it was a slam spring or just a tuck spring ........

well it's been a about 2 months but the car has been sitting in the garage for the most part of it. is it possible that the rear springs are not fitted or installed upside down...??

If i can remember correctly, you can't fit the rears upside down, someone correct me if im wrong. If your car is just sitting without driving it, the springs won't settle. You need to drive it in order for them to settle properly.

I personally think it LOOKS ok. Unless you're hearing noises, and feel that they aren't installed properly, i wouldn't worry about it. The H&R race springs are MUCH higher than that in the rear for the E46's. The lowest drop in the rear for the E46's that i have seen with only springs are the Eibachs.

V2 springs dont sit that high, even if they need time to settle they wont drop that much more.

Theres something wrong.


Intrax supersport's has a pretty crazy rear drop too.

I like it as it is. It's good. The silver coupe before in my opinion is too low.

some springs are different front and rear. the back would be naturally higher. looks good to me

listen to what Bliss said...he's absolutely right.... I've installed lots of springs and 90% of the time they cant be installed upside down....or incorectly for that matter.....and you definately need to log some milage on them .....they WILL settle...
